Maybe people missed a key word in my post. I will emphasize it for you:
vasta41 wrote:I agree. And if you're concerned about the price I would urge you not to be. More people will back this project if a better printer is used, hence "you've got to spend money to make money."

And I'm only implying that money is an issue because all of the printers the artist considered are cheaper than EPCC, LPCC, and USPCC. I'm only trying to help because I would like to see these made and I'd like them to be made by a good company.

I totally understood what you said. I believe Sunish wanted a company from India to print the decks further adding to the theme. But the demo deck was crappy and better that he cancel than tarnish his name.

I hope like a bunch of you he goes with better company and succeeds.

Hi All,

Yes, the main motivation was to get this Indian themed deck to be made in India. Now, it won't happen but it is okay at least I gave it a shot.

In retrospect, I think I did a good job in getting the prototype delivered to me or else it would have been a major disappointment. If I'd have got it earlier before campaign launch, it would have saved much of the effort and energy I put in last few days.

I apologize to Max though, who worked over the weekend to get the blogpost in both English & Spanish on his site (Maxplayingcards.com) as well on Social media.

But yeah... Even I have to say that using Expert/Legends is your best option.


I'd tried contacting Asha long back when I was just going through all available vendors. No response over email or on phone.

Yeah, EPCC has been one of the best to deal with. Worked with them on the first project as well on DAPC initially. Let's see.

Yes, If this deck happens now, it will be via the best printers. I have been so immensely stressed over the last few days, don't want this to happen again.

The fact that you canceled the campaign (which I can only imagine wasn't an easy decision) due to the quality of the sample you received speaks volumes. Not all designers would do that and I think it speaks to your work- you'd rather it be as close to perfect as possible than cut corners. Take your time and when this comes back I'm sure it will come back strong!

I still don't like the one-way courts but they are beautiful so I can overlook that. I'm not crazy about the front of the tuck either- I wish it popped with color as much as the courts do! But I love everything else and I will definitely be pledging. Great job overall with the redesign and choice of printer!!

I wasn't crazy about the tuck front until I read about it. Very interesting. I think "Hindu Mythology inspired cards" somewhere would help.

Thank you all for your support.

Rich- Thanks for the feedback you provided on the feedback page as well. Lately, I'd become overly critical of myself, and when you see so many gorgeous decks being launched on Kickstarter, it can overwhelm you sometimes. That said, I worked on your suggestions, thanks again.

All- Lots of learning in the last few weeks after I'd canceled the last campaign. I was trying out the possibility of foil on card back & tuck (both inner & outer) but, in the end, it all fell flat. It was a new design and though, I was working with a professional, the technical complexities in Production made it apparent that the new design won't stand the chance of what my initial expectations were. May be, I just got carried away and got overconfident in thinking that it would be a piece of cake. Having experienced all this now, I've got more appreciation towards the work done by Lotrek. Someone had recommended to get in touch with him long back but I didn't and in retrospect,I can see that it could have saved a lot of time if I'd talked to an expert like him.

Anyways, please feel free to reach out for any question, feedback & suggestions.

Wish all the luck, but will have to pass, too many great projects runnig at the same time.... decisons, choices have to be made.

The artwork is great, I'm sure will get this deck later in the after market.
